  1. Its much better to step inside of his guard rendering his strikes useless and weak. Staying outside allows them an oppurtunity to throw a wild punch and catch you as you step in. This is not a smart technique for a legitimate fight

  2. As someone who’s trained in old school TKD for almost 40 years I can tell you this guy is the real deal. This footwork is something I learned many years ago from a top point fighter. We called it the power slide. Very applicable w sidekicks as well. My instructor was a short Korean. He always emphasized footwork like this. A huge advantage against someone unfamiliar w it. I can remember using it for one of the first times sparring w a group of very good shotokan stylists. They were effective w grabs, sweeps and punches , but totally helpless against someone who could bridge the gap while kicking or punching, rather than bridging the gap and then striking. High level concept fr Master Woo.

  3. "Kick and run away". That is not a good advice for some reasons:
    1. Taller opponents have advantages over you in a distance fight, as their attacking range is much wider than yours.
    2. You are actually turning your back against your opponent, making you vulnerable to an attack. If you are in Taekwondo sparring competition, you will get you marks deducted as well

    Fight examples always evenly match too much.
